Bringing the harmony and Breaking the barrier.
Kiran Nepali of “Sarangi Project” is back again with another cover of a western classic song Imagine by John Lennon. Kiran is on Sarangi while Aakriti Rai accompanied him on guitar.
Kiran also plays Sarangi for popular Nepali folk instrumental group “KUTUMBA” and “Bipul Chettri and The Traveling Band”
“We recently started ‘Project Sarangi Covers’ where we are trying to cover English as well as other songs to bring harmony between the Western and Nepalese Folk instruments.” Kiran told Nepalisite.com. “Also to break the people’s mental barrier that the Nepalese folk instrument only play the very traditional folk tunes.”
Reviving Nepali Folk Music through Project Sarangi
Kiran believes that by doing such cover versions will inspire and motivate younger generation to start playing folk instruments.
It took about 4-5 hours to complete the video with the help of “Katha Haru” a video production company based in Kathmandu.
